An unusually warm spring kicked off another record early grape harvest for 2016. Unlike 2015, which was equally early, 2016 had a much more moderate Summer with fewer heat spikes than either 2014 or 2015. A small heat spike during bloom lead to a smaller fruit set with smaller berries. A slightly warmer than usual August shepherded the modest crop loads to full ripeness in record time. As a result, the 2016 wines show stunning concentration and balance when compared to other warm vintages with similarly pristine, ripe fruit. 2016 marks the 3rd consecutive stellar vintage in the Northern Willamette.
